(Click the picture for slide show).November 29, 2015When the clock struck midnight on the big day, I was dancing the night away at a wedding oblivious to anything but a beaming couple and the air of love in the room.  Time became endless, and I was gliding from one moment to another without stopping.

Trekking Volcano Fuego

    0
I don’t know why I think these treks will get easier. Climbing the third highest Volcano Acatenango to see Volcano Fuego was a huge challenge. It only took us five-ish hours to get up to top, but we were lugging all of our stuff and our own water! It was also extremely steep. I’m glad I had a few of my friends from the yoga...

Office Space of The Week

    0
Before I had arrived in Semuc Champey, I had double-checked that the hostel had wifi. The response was that there was “jungle wifi” so it comes and goes sometimes. Well, the wifi here consisted of walking five minutes up a steep hill to a hut with a stone bench outside. The first time I came here it was pitch black too. It took two hours...

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain Ever since I ran off to Girl Scout camp for two weeks when I was eight years old, I’ve loved...

Today the rest of us mystical yoga farm stragglers attended an all day fermentation workshop in San Marcos on Lake Atitlan Guatemala. We had been well addicted to Love Probiotics, a local company run by a couple that makes kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, vinegar and a few other fermented items. These products were pretty much all we could get our hands on all month, so we...

Musings on Prague

    0
I’m writing this post on our last day in Prague and I can and can’t believe it. When I’ve told people back home that I’m leaving for Lisbon today they respond with exclamations of “Wow! Already!?” and “This year is going to fly by for you.” But actually, four weeks in Prague has really felt more like four months. It’s amazing how long a month...

I’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy so many amazing meals that I sometimes feel like I’ve tried it all and it’s near impossible to find something new and interesting. Not to brag, but this has been my life as long as I can remember and it’s what I know best. And after so many [...]

With Remote Year, you never know what your living situation will be like until the minute you walk in the door. In my case, so far so good. My place in Córdoba is nothing fancy, but the water is hot,...
